Automating Visual C++ Builds with Perl

I am starting to script my Visual C 5.0 builds with Perl so I can run them at night.

I used to use Makefiles for that, but under Visual C 5.0, maintaining Makefiles is an extra burden, and the average programmer will rebel if you ask him or her to use them. According to Steve Hardy, Perl is the way to go.
